While the film, which was shot on the premises of the former military base, was originally intended to reflect the topic of war, it eventually resulted in the topic of symbolic violence, embodied by the medium of film. The children’s acting is absolutely nonviolent, but it is obvious that it was enforced by the film crew. “How do we organize our lives? In the first place we need appreciation. We are not acknowledged by anyone. We must be acknowledged and perceived, it is not possible to be unheard,” says one of the children.
